Wallace Defends Bill Bollinger Memorial Title
Hagerstown Speedway hosted the 3rd annual Bill Bollinger Memorial race on Saturday, July 12th. This race is a special event for the Series as we honor a man who played an instrumental role in the growth of the Series. The tracked showed great promise as Ernie Davis/Rick Jones and crew did an outstanding job preparing the surface for some great racing action. In the heat race action, it was the defending race champ Matt Wallace with the win in heat race #1. Hanover, PA's very own Steve Cantwell took command of heat race #2 to set the stage for the feature finale. 
 
The 20 lap Frederick Scrap feature event got underway at the drop of the green. Wallace and Cantwell powered off turn four with the field in tow. Wallace gained the advantage going into turn one and never looked back. The non-stop green to checker event provided some great racing action as the 112 of Steve Clemo battled with the 73 of Neal Reamer. Clemo and Reamer took their fight for position to the number 2 spot and Cantwell was in the midst of the action. Mean while, Roland Brown, co-point leader, swapped positions with the 34 of Joe Snodgrass through the turns and on the straight aways. The 86 car owned by Wes Brown gave up his seat to Joe Brown, joined in the action and powered his loaner up to a 5th place finish. As the checkers dropped it was all Wallace picking up the win and sole possession of the point lead over roland Brown. Cantwell barely held onto 3rd holding off the hard charging Reamer. Steve Clemo settled into 4th with his 112 racer.
 
In victory lane Wallace was once again joined by Cindy Bollinger and her daughter Aimee. It was nice to see such a big smile on their face as the feature event provided some clean competitive racing action. Wallace told the crowd, "It's a special race to win". John McGarvey jumped into the victory lane crowd to congratulate Wallace on his win and to share some fond memories about Bill Bollinger. It turned out to be an awesome night. 
 
The Series takes a breather and has put out a revised 2014 schedule. Please note an additional Hagerstown date has been added and the postponed Susquehanna race has been posted on the new schedule. 
 
The Series in back in action on Saturday, August 9th at Path Valley and visits Susquehanna on Sunday, August 10th. 
Brown Wins at Path Valley Speedway Park
Roland Brown had scored 4 second place finishes going into Saturday night at Path Valley Speedway Park. With the field set and Brown up eyeing up the front row, he slipped into the second place spot at the drop of the green. Ron Grove out of Wrightsville, Pa earned the pole with his impressive heat race win. Grove set sail in the 09 car and was widening the gap as each lap clicked off. As the 25 lap feature event wore on the ailing back of Grove began to take its toll. At lap 15 the 87 of Brown was able to get to Grove and make the pass. Wes Brown, a newcomer to the Series, was picking up the pointers from the 87 car and was also able to capitalize on the uncomfortable 09 driver. The caution free Signature Property Services event concluded with Roland Brown in victory lane, Brown explained in victory lane, "I was surprised that I was able to catch the 09 car, Ron was running a great race". The win for Brown earned him some valuable points as he chases Wallace in the 578 who finished third. Wes Brown continues to impress his fellow drivers with a solid third place performance.

The Series looks ahead to an action packed weekend. Starting off on Friday night, the Series heads to Trail-Way Speedway and then on Saturday night they return to Hagerstown Speedway.

Make plans to come out and enjoy some quality racing action.
Cantwell Wins the 2014 Opener!
The teams rolled into the "Action Track" Winchester Speedway under clear skies for the 2014 Classic Racing Series season opener. The high banked "paper clip" plays host to many exciting races for the Series and this night would not disappoint. Early heat race action had the #112 of Steve Clemo taking the heat race lead, but Jim Crocker crawled out of retirement and into the #12 and was able to take the first heat win of the year. Steve Cantwell showed early on that his #20 was strong, winning the 2nd heat race. The stage was set for the 20 lap Winchester Scrap main event. Crocker started on the pole, but the #12 machine was no match for the speed of the orange #20 driven by Steve Cantwell making it stick in turn 2. With Cantwell off to an early lead, the #578 of Matt Wallace and the #9 of Brandon Little would split the #12 car of Crocker coming out of turn 4 to take over the chase for the lead. Little had caught Cantwell, but was unable to make a move for the lead. Wallace would soon pull beside Little and clear him entering turn one. The battle for the lead was on! Wallace would try everything he had, but he could not overcome the Hanover, Pennsylvania driver. Steve Cantwell picked up the first win in the series of 2014, and his first win at Winchester Speedway. Cantwell, Wallace, Little, Crocker, and Roland Brown made up the top 5.

Racing notables- Both heat races and the 20 lap feature event went green to checkers, Wes Brown debuted his new 86 car, Steve Cantwell Jr, jumped into action in the 29 car, and Neal Reamer's brand new 73 saw racing action for the first time. Join us in two weeks when the Series heads out west to Roaring Knob Speedway!
